Man Charged With Failing To Turn Over Evidence In Animal Cruelty Case

60-year-old Bruce Morrison Gray of Highway 90 in Collettsville was arrested Friday (April 16) by Caldwell County Sheriff’s Officers and charged with felony obstruction of justice.

More information was released in reference to an incident on March 28, 2021, in which a dog was killed at Betsy’s Old Country Store in the Wilson’s Creek Community. Joshua Wayne Hawley was arrested March 30 and charged with felony cruelty to animals, as previously reported on WHKY.

Further investigation has revealed that another video exists of the incident and it has been turned over to Caldwell County Sheriff’s Investigators. The video revealed that the dog, Rocky, charged and lunged aggressively at Hawley at which point he shot the dog. The further investigation also revealed that the owner of Betsy’s Old Country Store, Bruce Morrison Gray, had possession of the video and failed to turn that video over to Caldwell County Investigators.

As a result, Gray was arrested and charged. He was released after posting $20,000 secured bond. A District Court appearance was scheduled today (April 19).
